Protecting her isn’t an option. It’s a requirement.
Badger finally got Rosie in his bed, but in order to keep her there, he has to figure out how to save her life.
After her drug-running husband gets himself killed, Rosie Santini figures Phoenix is a fine place to get a fresh start. Deuce’s strip club isn’t too fresh, but the money’s easy. As she works the pole, the only gaze she can’t ignore belongs to the club’s head bouncer, Badger Baxter. But Rosie’s seen her fair share of tall, dark, and dangerous, and no way is she heading down that road. Not even for a hot hunk of muscle like Badger.
When he’s not bounty hunting, Badger runs security at Deuce’s. Rosie should be just another piece of fresh meat in the club’s stable of pole jockeys, but all her sexy parts add up to a ride Badger would like to test drive. Trouble is, Badger likes his women submissive, but not broken. She’s definitely got baggage he wants no part of. But when her husband’s killer shows up looking for stolen cash, she fits naturally under his protection—and it isn’t long before she’s hooked deep into his heart.
So deep, losing her now would make him bleed in more ways than one.
Warning: This book contains violent situations due to physical altercations and gunfire. Be on the look out for D/s sexual play, which may cause drooling and might have you reaching for the nearest man or battery operated boyfriend.

Rosie, married her high-school sweetheart… Their life wasn’t easy and her husband seems to be good at getting himself in trouble. She gets a call late at night and he is in some trouble, and she packed and leaves town, after helping him out, once again.
He has been doing some illegal jobs and she know it was the end of him.
She travels to Phoenix and needs a job, quick. She looks for a job as a stripper, since she has some experience with that… and winds up at Deuce’s, and that is where she meets Badger.
Badger works as a bouncer, bartender and on the side he is a bounty hunter. He is single and likes his life just the way it is. Badger tries his best to not get attached to Rosie, he goes as far as having her think he hates her.
But he doesn’t…there is something about her since the first day she walks into the club, he wanted her.
“Can’t figure you out. Been trying since you walked in the bar that first day. So f*cking different. Something behind your eyes too. Hurt. Pain. Anger. Whatever it is, its baggage…”
And boy does she have “baggage”… Rosie’s past comes back to haunt her, and Badger takes on the job of protecting her. Well… and finally getting her into his bed.
If you want a HOT ALPHA MALE who comes to the rescue… Badger is your man.
Strong female character who has the strength to change her life, and try to do it on her own…Rosie is your girl…until you get her in the bedroom…wink, wink.
The way this author writes, you really get to know the characters, and understand how they feel.

As luck would have it, the first post came out in the form of a poem. A few authors she’d met online encouraged her to write more, and in the span of 2 years she wrote over 150 poems. The poems led to short stories, which blossomed into novels. Evident from the very beginning was her voice as an author that is real and packed with wit and sarcasm. Her stories will always include complex, broken people trying to figure out how to start and keep a relationship as well as lots of hot, steamy sex. As Dorothy sees it, the journey is the best part.
